(See my other Podcast related posts) – I found the History Extra podcasts a couple of weeks ago. I spent some time culling through them looking for WWII related topics.
Another early episode I found is “A Nazi serial killer and a Tudor gentleman“. In this episode, there is a short (9 minute) discussion at the beginning about a serial killer in WWII Berlin. The episode brings up the interesting problem of increased crime during blackouts. I have not read much about this happening in the UK, but I am sure that it did. I thought it gave some interesting views on the home front challenges.
If you are interested in the WWII era of history, you may find these three pages of interest.
- The “World War II Sources” page is a constantly growing collection of more than 370 links to museums, memorials, websites, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds and other sources with information on the World War II-era in history.
- The “World War II Timeline” page expands almost daily and shows events leading up to WWII, as well as during the war. Events are broken down into the Pacific and European Theaters by date.
- The About WWII page is a collection of links to posts that I have made over the years that are relevant to WWII.
